Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.04.09] post apocalyptic movie news



Vampire Bill, dino expert, Dr. Alan Grant, and that mom from A.I. fighting against the dangers of a second ice-age? Bring it on!

From the producers of the 13-part network series, Crusoe and the upcoming 2-part modernization of Day of the Triffids comes an adaptation of James Follett's 70's post-apocalyptic disaster novel, "Ice."


Synopsis:
ICE sees the destructive effects of climate change cause unimaginable devastation and panic worldwide as the human race finds itself contemplating the dawn of a new ice age.

It is 2020. Findings by environmental scientist Professor Thom Archer suggest that Halo, the corporate energy company drilling on the Greenland Glacier are causing it to melt.

Archer's warnings are ignored, so he heads to the Arctic to find indisputable evidence. Upon arrival, he realises humankind is under immediate threat, and races home to save hisfamily.

The glacier collapses, with devastating consequences. Astonishing weather patterns emerge and plunge the world's temperatures into steep decline.

ICE confronts a wholly terrifying and plausible natural disaster of epic proportions. This uncompromising production sees a planet on the brink of annihilation, unleashing an apocalypse with an intensity and magnitude audiences will never forget.


Other members of ICE's impressive cast include RICHARD ROXBURGH (Van Helsing, The League Of Extraordinary Gentleman), CLAIRE FORLANI (The Rock, The Diplomat), BEN CROSS (Hannibal, Star Trek), SIMON CALLOW (Rome), PATRICK BERGIN (Patriot Games, Smallville).

Ice is currently filming in New Zealand with a 2010 release date.

I'm confused. How is this different than the Day After Tomorrow?

Oh for the love of...It goes from The Coming Ice Age in the 70's to Global Warming in the 90's, to Climate Change/Global Cooling now. These cult leaders and followers should get a new job. I'd be more inclined to see this film if the global disaster wasn't the cause of "evil corporations" and based on "plausible" evidence. Sigh. Drink the Kool-aide.

I'll probably still see it. Come on. Sam Neil is in it.
